Diyar Al Muharraq is committed to creating a better and more sustainable community

As an integrated, inclusive development, Diyar Al Muharraq is committed to creating a better, stronger, safer and more sustainable community for all to enjoy. The CSR vision incorporates a spectrum of initiatives which enrich the environmental, social and economic future of the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Diyar Al Muharraq has embraced three distinct tracks of CSR: environmental responsibility, community engagement and developing meaningful participation in nation-building. Whether supporting marine life by installing artificial reefs in key project waterways, engaging with grassroots community initiatives such as the Muharraq Communal Society, or embarking on a ground-breaking initiative with the Ministry of Housing to develop affordable housing, the organisation embraces good causes with enthusiasm and effectiveness.

Protecting the Environment

From the very beginning of the project, Diyar has taken responsibility for its environmental and social impact. A vital pillar in the organisation’s corporate value system and overall vision, Diyar Al Muharraq has outlined a clear strategy to protect the environment both on and around the development. By separating environmental responsibility from the usual CSR function, the organisation is able to focus on ensuring that it can implement the highest international standards for sustainability and environmental protection and make every green initiative count.

From using its connections in the community to build environmental awareness to partnering with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to improve the organisation’s environmental accountability, the organisation has always gone the extra mile to create a greener, more sustainable future.

A wide range of impactful environmental initiatives aim to create large-scale environmental benefits for future residents and other community groups. Regular beach clean-ups have Recycle IT assisted the government in developing an efficient waste e-management system, while artificial reefs were installed in many of the development’s waterways to encourage marine life to flourish.

Community Engagement

Creating a thriving, diverse and integrated community underpins Diyar Al Muharraq’s philosophy. As part of its mission to create a better future for all, the organisation encourages staff and the wider community to engage with the most vulnerable sections of society. It pioneers a wide range of efforts to offer goodwill and support to the elderly and the needy. It collaborates with a range of NGOs and community initiatives, such as the Muharraq Communal Society, offering logistical support to projects such as beach clean ups or restoring the historic Muharraq market.

Social Responsibility

Diyar Al Muharraq is committed to supporting the Kingdom of Bahrain’s progressive goals as it looks towards the future. A development which celebrates diversity and inclusivity, the organisation has entered into a dynamic public-private partnership with the Ministry of Housing to develop affordable housing and integrated social housing projects for Bahraini nationals. Essential community services are a key part of the development’s masterplan, with community centres included in all residential developments across the islands to further enrich residents’ quality of life.
